Many people are surprised to discover low-voltage lighting is a relatively new thing. Bill Locklin is credited with inventing low-voltage landscape lighting and later founding the Nightscaping® brand in 1959.
Known for their durability and understated elegance, Nightscaping’s fixtures were the market leader until the early 1980’s. They were a function of Locklin’s landscape lighting philosophy, “See the effect and not the source”.
Here at Proactive Landscaping, we confidently choose quality fixtures that are built to last like they were in the beginning. The difference now is you can have an outdoor lighting system that is stylish, durable, and easy to maintain.

What does a typical outdoor lighting system cost?
Every system we install is customized to the property and how it works together with the home that sits on it. Lighting the front of the home and the entranceway is usually the client’s first priority. For safety and balance, secondary pathways and major landscape features are also included. That scope usually averages out to about $2,000 – $2,500 for a 2000 square foot home.
There are many factors that factor into lighting designs. Some families greatly value lighting on one particular side that integrates the front and back yard spaces. Also, the maturity of your landscaping and nearby street lighting are also factors that determine the project’s scope and complexity. All of this can be discussed during the initial, free consultation.
Once you visit with one of our highly trained professional designers you will see why we are the number one outdoor lighting contractor in the Tulsa and Broken Arrow areas.
Why not install an outdoor lighting “box” system myself?
This is a great question. The easy answer is that it will do the job for small areas. That limitation and its life expectancy are the primary shortcomings. If you have a small nook in your back yard this can be an acceptable solution.
However, there are many elements that wreak havoc on lighting systems. In addition to weather, you have mechanical elements such as mowers, weed eaters, and rodents. Yes, creatures that nibble through truck and trailer wiring will do the same with less durable outdoor lighting wires.
These system’s connections notoriously deteriorate, causing fixtures to burn out prematurely, not burn bright enough, or not light up at all. Not to mention you won’t get a 10-year warranty on all your fixtures or a lifetime warranty on your residential transformers that we offer on every lighting system Proactive Landscaping installs.
